Clooney: I didn't like Batsuit

George Clooney has revealed he didn't like some of the details on his Batman costume.

The two-time Oscar-winning star admitted he was "embarrassed" with the Batsuit's nipples when he played the superhero in Joel Schumacher's Batman And Robin during an Ask Me Anything chat with fans on Reddit.

"I wasn't thrilled with the nipples on the Batsuit. You figure all Batsuits have nipples and then you realise yours was really the first," he said.

"Batman was just constantly cold, I guess. But I have plenty of other things that I'm really obviously embarrassed about too."

George, who was promoting his new film The Monuments Men and the Satellite Sentinel project, admitted to being embarrassed during O Brother, Where Art Thou? with Ethan and Joel Coen.

"I remember the Coen brothers assumed I could sing, I kind of assumed I could too. I went into the studio with T-Bone Burnett and the Coen brothers and sang my version of Man Of Constant Sorrow and they were all looking down at the ground and kind of shaking their heads and they play it back and it's just terrible," he said.

The 52-year-old filmmaker joked that his Batman wouldn't have been useful in a real-life brawl.

"I don't think my Batman could have even walked across the stage. If Batman actually had to wear the suit that I wore, which was like 40 pounds of rubber, he literally physically wouldn't be able to lift his arms," he quipped.

"They put you on a flat board, lie you on the ground and bolt you into this thing, and then they just pull the board out and leave you standing. Joel Schumacher goes 'Action', I say, 'I'm Batman', and then, cut, they drop me back down on the board and leave me on my back."
